Welcome to the 2020 Newgrounds Underdogs’ Audio Contest, the 7th rendition of an annual music competition on the site.  


Wow, this sounds really cool! How do I join?

Just post a link to the piece you want the judges to consider in this thread. For this round, it can be something you wrote years ago, or you can make it from scratch specifically for the competition. You can also change the piece you’d like us to judge by posting a new one before the deadline.


When’s the deadline?

You have until 23:59 (11:59 p.m.) Eastern Daylight Time on August 1, 2020 to enter the competition.


What happens after I submit my piece?

Immediately after the tryout submission phase, the participants will be grouped evenly based on their fan totals, and about half of them will be accepted into the next round. Participants won’t directly compete outside of their groups until the Final Round. There are 3 rounds over the course of about 2 months.


That’s 2 months of my life you’re talking about. What’s in it for me?

Prizes will include forum signatures for the top 3 finishers boasting of their success in the competition, as well as spots on the front page of the Audio Portal the week after the competition. You can also expect to improve your music, meet a ton of awesome people, and gain some more exposure on the site.


So who are the beautiful humans that make all this possible?

@ACXLE, @ADR3-N, @Bad-Man-Incorporated, @GoreBastard, @JessieYun + @sjlsmusic, @LunacyEcho, @Midimachine, @Mutty99, and myself have joined the judging team so far. We’re still looking for judges, so please PM me if you’d like to nominate one. 


Also, @Decky makes the forum signatures for the winners, and @TomFulp runs the entire website and stuff.


What else do I need to know?

Actually, kind of a lot of things. PLEASE READ THE COMPLETE LIST OF RULES that couldn’t fit in this forum post. When in doubt, ask for clarification in this thread or via PM.


But above all, remember to have a ton of fun! May the competition begin.

This song may sound odd (and there is an intentional reason for it), but I'm pretty happy with it overall, please consider it and thank you!

2017 - Atom Explosion (5/10) | Did Not Pass Tryouts

2018 - N/A

2019 - Slurpeeee (6/10) | Did Not Pass Tryouts

2020 - Zombie Hop (?/10) | TBA

Honestly. So long as I can get higher than a 6 I will be extremely pleased with myself for being able to progress each year (UwU).

Here's to a 6.5.10! (UwU)

Currently at 17 fans with my old account at 71 with a grand total of 88 (UwU).

Still under 100 in total.


Remember to have a fair day , and keep it peaceful.
